Description

Iim-ul-Faraiz, i.e., the Islamic Law of Inheritance, is the most important branch of Shariah (Islamic Law). By providing rigid and clear-cut-rules of inheritance, in Sura al-Nisa (Al-Qur’an), Allah, the Law Giver of Islam, has Himself emphasized the importance and the pride of place, this branch of Shariah enjoys in the life of Muslim as a community. The Prophet of Allah (on whom be His blessing and peace) has emphasized forcefully the great need for acquiring the knowledge of the Islamic law of inheritance and transmitting it to others.

It is, however, very unfortunate that this most important aspect of Shariah has by far remained much neglected from academic point of view, Judges, lawyers, teachers, teacher and students of Islamic Law do not only take little interest in this important aspect of Shariah, but also try to bypass it at the cost of even their professional responsibility and competency.

This book is the need of the time. I am sure and hopeful that the teachers, lawyers, judges, students and other readers interested in this important branch of Islamic law will welcome the appearance of this work. The book also contains some special chapters which not only counter the unfair and biased comments and criticisms of so-called orientalists, Western writes and examines of Islam but also provides the clear insight of the laws of inheritance in Islam. The simplification of the difficult principles through novel methods and illustrations is the speciality of the work. It is intended for the Orientalists, the lawyers, the students of Islamic and Comparative law, the teacher, the sociologist and the researcher concerned with the problems connected with this important branch of Sharia. The author for this solid piece of work and original ideas deserves full credit and appreciation.
